hm... In the Marines Basic, what kind of roping do we have to do? that helicopter roping or that "bouncing off the wall in front of you" kind of roping? DO we also have to do that AUssie style "Upside Down" roping technique? I dont think i have the mentality or the muscle to do that

Basic Rappelling from a tower, sheer face style, Helio rappelling, also known as the "H Hole, and finally, a fast rope from the tower.
